  • last year i turned 25 and freaked, im sure i'll freak again later. but at that point i was working a "real" job, had a 2 1/2 yr old, and had been married at that point for 6 yrs i felt like i was alot older than 25 and that i was still supposed to be just 25 having fun.

  • I would give anything to be 30 again!!! Just wait until you are 60, then you will really have a good reason to feel bad. Can you imagine? It is wonderful to be 30. Your life is just beginning!!!!!! YEAH, you are a cry baby. ;-) Enjoy yourself!

  • I panicked when I turned 30 and didn't accept it for a few years. When I turned 40 I was very comfortable with my age and accepted it with open arms. So it was just getting past 30 and then I was fine. :)

  • I was afraid to turn 40 because my husband was still in his 30's but now that I am 48 I feel like I have a whole new outlook. With age comes wisdom.

  • I think Ill wig when I turn 40. I loved turning 30 and turning 20 was rather blah.

  • ha ha...I freaked when I turned 26...everyone called it my quarter life crisis. I wanted another baby...and my fiance said that was years away. He was 31 and thought I was nuts for freaking out. But now I just turned 27 and I am 5 months pregnant so I am good.

  • Glad to hear writeon because I took 30 very hard....40 not soo bad...but I so don't want to be 50, that sounds so old and I don't feel a day over 25.
